U.S. Border Agents Prepare for the Pope’s Trip to Mexico

WASHINGTON TIMES — A second visit to the U.S. isn’t part of Pope Francis‘ itinerary during his trip Wednesday to the Mexican border town of Juarez, but that doesn’t mean U.S. law enforcement agencies along the Texas border aren’t prepared for an impromptu visit.

Given the pope’s affinity for unscripted remarks and spontaneous detours during his trips, border agents and local police based in El Paso have staffed up and officials say they are prepared just in case the pontiff opts to cross the border to visit with those expected to gather on the U.S. side.
